Butterflies & Bows

Hello there! Happy Saturday,

I hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend.

This is a lovely scheduled post today as I am current in London with Becca on our weekend of fun! Last night we were at the Michael Buble concert at the O2 (praying that he sings just one Christmas song!!) and tonight we are off to see Top Hat on the Strand. Its been so busy at work over the last couple of months and we've both been really looking forward to this weekend.

So, today's challenge at Sweet Stampin is one that definitly challenged me a little bit....this week we want to see butterflies and bows on your creations. Now these are probably my least two favourite embellishments of all time! I'm not sure why....I just can't seem to use them well! Anyway, challenges are here to push us out of our comfort zones...so here is my card....

 
I've gone with a zingy orange and green colour combo (although I'm not sure what I did with the colours in this photo!!) as I thought this would go with the fab Pollycraft image. I've coloured the image with my Promarkers, added a little bit of sparkle to the butterflies with my Stickles and finally added some faux stitches in pencil. I have tied a bow in some gingham ribbon before attaching that to the card too.
 
Pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see how the rest of Team Abi used butterflies and bows on their cards! While you're there you can also check out our fab sponsors this challenge and the prizes on offer!
 

 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
 
Pop by these fab blogs if you have the chance to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.
 
If you get the chance you could also pop by my new blog that I have started with my sister Lorna - over there we will be sharing our afternoon tea experiences....we promise lots of photos of yummy cakes!!
 
 
Thanks for popping by today,
see you soon!
